Managing People Is Like Herding Cats: Warren Bennis on Leadership
Executive Excellence Publishing, Jan 1, 1999 - Business & Economics - 236 pages
Cats of course, won't be herded. And the most successful organizations in the 21st Century won't be managed -- they'll be led.
The answer to America's current leadership crisis is leaders (not managers) who recognize that "the only capital that really counts is human capital" And whether readers are looking for a leader or looking to be a better one, Warren knows what it takes. In answer to the leadership crisis, Bennis offers insight into developing leaders and their competencies, by explaining ten traits of dynamic leaders, and how these leaders constantly reinvent themselves. The 21st century will require leaders who can inspire and orchestrate change rather than impose it or simply react to it. The section on "Leading Change" will, in itself, make this a must-have book.
